Summer movie season is great, but there's also great pleasure in the transition to fall, when more serious films hit the big screen. The fall festival season is a big part of that shift. Events like the Venice Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival feature the debuts of huge films, like JOKER, FORD V FERRARI and HARRIET, alongside smaller movies with the potential to be big surprises, like UNCUT GEMS and JUDY.
We've compiled a list of the 2019 film festival movies we can't wait to see, and this is just the beginning for a few months of great movies. Many of the films below already have release dates set, and we've listed them according to that order.

Judy Garland was as famous for her turbulent life as her crystalline performances in films like THE WIZARD OF OZ, MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS and A STAR IS BORN. Early years controlled by movie studio moguls kept Garland away from the real world. When the business changed and her work dried up, Judy Garland had no idea how to life a real life. This film, based on Peter Quilter's stage play "End of the Rainbow," looks at the final year of Garland's life, which begins with the performer in a dire place, and ends — well, we'll let you see the film. Renée Zellweger brings Garland back to life in astonishing fashion that captures every facet of one of the great movie stars. [September 27]

The film festival landscape doesn't typically have much room for comic book movies. The fact that JOKER premiered to rave reviews at the Venice Film Festival, where it won the festival's top prize, is a good indicator that it is something very different from most DC Comics films put out by Warner Bros. Joaquin Phoenix stars as Arthur Fleck, a hapless sad-sack who works as a clown and dreams of being a stand-up comedian. Problem is, Arthur, who prefers to be called Joker, isn't actually funny, but he does have a condition that causes him to laugh at the worst possible moments. When Joker's life takes several dark turns, he unwittingly ignites a violent movement in Gotham City, even as the cast-off clown gets his big break. [October 4]

South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho has made movies about monsters that are both bestial (THE HOST) and human (SNOWPIERCER). This new movie is certainly on the human side of the spectrum, as it follows an impoverished family which uses deceit to get jobs working for a wealthy couple. Which doesn't seem so bad, right? Their precise tricks are pretty nasty, however, and that's just the beginning. PARASITE is surprising and weird and very funny; just when you think you've got the film figured out it becomes something else entirely. With this movie, Bong Joon-ho has created an absolute masterpiece — a beautifully-shot story about class and envy and deception. [October 11]

THOR: RAGNAROK and WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS director Taika Waititi wrote, directed and stars in this World War II satire in which a young German boy discovers that his mother (Scarlett Johansson) is sheltering Jewish people in their home. The boy, Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis), consults his imaginary friend to figure out what to do. The only problem is that his imaginary friend is Adolf Hitler (Waititi). Granted, this is a child's vision of Hitler, which means he's pretty nice, as dictators go. Even so, Jojo will have to figure out how to deal with his mother's betrayal against everything he has been taught, in this surprisingly touching attack on fascist thinking and indoctrination.

It's a big year for Bruce Springsteen on film. First there was BLINDED BY THE LIGHT, in which music by the Boss transforms the life of a teenager in '70s Britain. Now, in the Toronto International Film Festival premiere WESTERN STARS, Springsteen himself reflects on life and creativity, in between performances of music from his new album, 'Western Stars.'

Filmmaker Kasi Lemmons (EVE'S BAYOU) directs Cynthia Erivo in a film about the life and work of Araminta "Minty" Ross, who took a new name after escaping slavery on a Maryland plantation: Harriet Tubman. After receiving help from a loose network known as the Underground Railroad, Minty relocates to Philadelphia. There, she meets Marie (Janelle Monáe), a free-born woman, who gives the former slave a new place in society, and a new name. She dedicates her life to leading escaped slaves to safety, and becomes an icon of freedom in the process. Cynthia Erivo's performances in WIDOWS and BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE proved that she is one of the most interesting actors working today, and this role should be an incredible showcase for her talents.

This true-to-life racing tale wowed audiences at the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado, where the film was announced as a special premiere. LOGAN director James Mangold tells the almost-unbelievable true story of Ken Miles (Christian Bale) and Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon), who teamed up to design a car that could beat Ferrari at the grueling 24-Hour of Le Mans race in the 1960s. With financing from by Henry Ford II, who tried and failed to buy Ferrari, the two men risk their stability and even their lives to come up with the greatest new sports car on the planet. We've seen James Mangold create amazing action before, but the racing in FORD V FERRARI, not to mention the fireworks between leads Bale and Damon, is next-level. [November 15]

Brothers Benny and Josh Safdie turned Robert Pattinson into a desperate thief in GOOD TIME; now they have cast Adam Sandler as a scheming jeweler who gets his hands on a gem-studded rock with dubious origins. This caper comedy throws one problem after another at Sandler's character, and turns his desperate desire to succeed into one of the greatest new films about New York crime in a long time. If you've hoped to see Adam Sandler do more films like Paul Thomas Anderson's bittersweet PUNCH DRUNK LOVE, then UNCUT GEMS is going to be your best bet in December.

You may think you know what to expect from period-piece adaptations of novels by Charles Dickens, but this film is likely to confound every assumption. That's because it is from filmmaker Armando Iannucci, whose previous works IN THE LOOP, "Veep" and THE DEATH OF STALIN are fast-paced, savage satires. Now, he turns that energy to the autobiographical novel by Dickens, which he adapts with a freewheeling spirit and the sort of comedy for which Iannucci is revered. Dev Patel stars as the title character, and the cast also features Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie, Peter Capaldi, Ben Whishaw, Paul Whitehouse and Aneurin Barnard. [Release date TBA]

In order to qualify to accrue points, you must identify yourself as a Member by presenting your User ID or required information when dealing with the Site and participating Cinemark locations.
Points that you accrue as a result of your transactions with the Site and participating Cinemark locations will be posted to your Account. Points will normally be posted to your Account within twenty-four (24) hours from the time of your purchase from the Site or participating Cinemark location, but we do not assume any liability for a failure to do so in a timely manner. You are solely responsible for checking your Account regularly to ensure that your points are properly credited. If proper credit does not appear on your activity statement, you should contact us via the Site and then provide any requested documentation to verify your purchase. We reserve the right to determine whether points should have been posted to your Account and to adjust your Account accordingly.
Some Cinemark locations may not participate in the Cinemark Movie Rewards Program. Membership entitles you to earn points only from those Cinemark locations in the United States participating in the Cinemark Movie Rewards Program. We may refuse to record or honor points in your Account, or if already recorded, we may cancel them, if we cannot confirm that they were properly issued or obtained. We may also cancel recorded points if the point-issuing Cinemark location tells us to cancel the points (for example, because you returned or did not pay for products or services for which the points were issued). Neither we nor any participating Cinemark location is responsible for any Reward or offer which is no longer in effect.
If you believe that any Account summary showing the number of points in your Account is in error, you must notify the point-issuing Cinemark location, or contact us through cinemark.com, within thirty (30) days of the date the point was or should have been issued or it will be deemed correct. You may be required to submit documentation (such as receipts) to support your claim. Members are responsible for emailing [email protected] to request points be added back for accidental redemption. However, we do not guarantee that points will be added back as requested.
Points are not redeemable for cash. Points are not eligible for re-sale or exchange. Points may not be used towards the purchase of a Gift Card or alcohol.

Upcharges may apply for any non-2D or premium format tickets. Movie Ticket Rewards issued to Movie Fan members will expire 90 days after issuance and will no longer be valid. Movie Ticket Rewards issued to Movie Club members will never expire so long as the member retains active Movie Club status. Should a Member cancel his/her Movie Club membership, Movie Ticket Rewards will expire 6 months from the date of cancellation. If a ticket purchased using a Movie Ticket Reward is refunded, the Movie Ticket Reward will revert back to the original expiration date at issuance as applicable to the Movie Fan or Movie Club membership.
Movie Ticket Rewards must be used before any Movie Club Credit (defined later) can be used.

Alternate means of entry to any such sweepstakes will be available by visiting the Site.
Physical items issued as Rewards may be limited to one Reward per Member. The one-Reward limit applies regardless of the number of points in the Account at the time and immediately after points are redeemed for a given Reward.
If points are redeemed for a physical Reward, the item will be fulfilled within 30 days of redemption. If the item received is damaged, the Member must provide photographic documentation of the damage to our guest services department at Contact Us. Points will not be refunded once an item has been sent to the fulfillment center for processing.

If Member does not accept any of the replacement items, points will be refunded to the Account. The size of Rewards received upon redemption of points is not guaranteed (for example, if the Reward offered is a T-shirt, Cinemark does not guarantee the Member will receive their preferred T-shirt size).

5.1 Program Overview. Enrollment in the Movie Club program is on the basis of a monthly membership fee (“Membership Fee”) as stated on our Movie Rewards page. An active Movie Club member (“Movie Club Member”) will receive one credit (“Credit”) per month valid for one regular 2D movie ticket. Additionally, Movie Club Members will also receive special members-only discounts on concessions at participating theaters.
When you enroll in Movie Club you will receive a monthly credit redeemable for one (1) regular 2D movie ticket at participating Cinemark theatres (and except in certain Cinemark theatres where an upcharge may be added) and will be able to access members-only pricing on tickets and concessions.
Movie Club Members are automatically enrolled in the Cinemark Movie Rewards Program. As such, Movie Club Members are subject to the Terms and Conditions set forth in Sections 3 and 4 above. In addition, the following Terms and Conditions apply. If there is a conflict between any terms in Sections 3 and 4 and this Section 5, the terms of this Section 5 shall control.
5.2 Enrollment, Renewal, and Cancellation. Purchase is required for enrollment in Movie Club. Movie Club Members must be enrolled in the Cinemark Movie Rewards Program (however, enrollment in Movie Fan does not require enrollment in Movie Club and there is no purchase required for enrollment as a Movie Fan member). The Membership Fee may vary based on zip code and may or may not include applicable taxes. The Membership Fee and terms of enrollment will not be changed during the course of the membership month. However, Cinemark reserves the right to change the Membership Fee and terms of enrollment at the time of monthly renewal. If the Membership Fee and terms of enrollment are changed, Cinemark will send an e-mail notification to Movie Club Members prior to renewal with instructions for termination of the Movie Club account (“Movie Club Account”).
Renewal of the Movie Club membership is automatic. Cinemark will charge the credit card on record for the Membership Fee, typically on the 30th day of the billing cycle for automatic renewal. Unless the Membership Fee has changed, Cinemark will not send any e-mail notification prior to charging the credit card for a renewal. The exact date for the next monthly billing will be displayed in the profile page of the Movie Club Account.
The Subscription Member is responsible for keeping the credit card information updated on the Movie Club Account. If the credit card on record cannot be charged, the Movie Club Account will be cancelled and Cinemark will send an e-mail to the Subscription Member notifying the cancellation of the Movie Club Account effective as of the date of renewal.
A Movie Club Account is active and available for use immediately upon receipt of the confirmation email acknowledging creation of a Movie Club Account. Enrollment is limited to one Movie Club Account per Movie Club Member per email address. Cinemark requires that Movie Club Members be at least sixteen (16) years of age.
There is no required minimum enrollment period. Movie Club Members may cancel membership at any time through the profile management page. The cancellation will be effective from the billing cycle following the effective date of cancellation. The Membership Fee cannot be refunded. All unused Credits remaining in the Movie Club Account expire six (6) months from the date of cancellation.
5.3 Use of Credits. Movie Club Members will receive one (1) Credit valid for one (1) regular 2D movie ticket during each month of membership. Except in certain theatres where an upcharge may be added, each Credit may be redeemed for one (1) regular 2D movie ticket or the Membership Fee paid for the Credit, whichever is higher. The Credit can be used to book tickets at any participating Cinemark theatre. Credits may be redeemed only for regular 2D tickets; upcharges will apply for any non-2D or premium format tickets.
Unused credits (“Rollover Credits”) rollover into the following month. Rollover Credits continue to rollover and may be used indefinitely in an active Movie Club Account. If a Movie Club Account is cancelled, all Rollover Credits expire six (6) months from the date of cancellation.
Credits may not be partially used; the entire Credit is to be used on booking one ticket. Tickets booked with a Credit are transferrable and may be used by anyone. However, Credits may not be transferred and are only redeemable by the Movie Club Member who received the Credit in his/her Movie Club Account.
A Movie Club Member can use any number of available Credits in a single transaction. All outstanding Credits must be used prior to receiving the Membership Fee price on additional tickets. However, the number of transactions on a Movie Club Account is limited to three (3) per day. All tickets purchased after the third transaction will be at the non-discounted price but service fees will be waived for all transactions. There are no limitations on number of transactions for the concessions discount.
If Credits are used to purchase tickets but the Member is unable to make the showtime, we will refund the Credit(s) (not cash value) to the Member’s Movie Club Account. The Member is not entitled to receive the cash value of any refunded tickets.
A Credit is not a Gift Card and is not redeemable for cash; it may not be used for any transaction except the booking of one (1) regular 2D movie ticket. Credits cannot be refunded. However, tickets booked using the Credit may be exchanged for a new ticket.
5.4 Member Discount; Purchase Process. Subscription Members will receive a 20% discount towards the purchase of all concessions, except on alcoholic beverages, dairy, etc. wherever prohibited by state law.
One companion ticket can be purchased at the then current Membership Fee price for each transaction in which a Credit is applied (regardless of how many Credits are applied in the transaction). If a Credit is not available to be applied (i.e., after all Credits have been exhausted) a Member may purchase two tickets at the then current Membership Fee price per transaction.
Members must present their User ID, or a print-out or email associated with their Movie Club Account to book a ticket at the point of sale. Members may book tickets online and will receive a confirmation number as with an ordinary purchase. Tickets booked using a Credit or member discount cannot be purchased at a Kiosk. No online fees or service fees are applied to transactions booked through an active Movie Club Account. Cinemark reserves the right to require customers to present an alternate form of identification, such as a valid photo ID, while booking a ticket at the box office with their Movie Club Account, if they cannot present a valid User ID.
